My friend Ilovesteptoe, Where are you?

Postby Dirty Old Yank » Sat Nov 11, 2017 7:39 pm

Ilovesteptoe, where are you mate??
Its been a huge pleasure to chat with folks here over the years, some of whom I’ve got to know well.
And as any regular visitor to this, Bob’s Steptoe Appreciation Society forum recognizes, ILS is one of the
funniest and fiercely intelligent people here. Yet, without warning...a few months ago he suddenly vanished.
He casually mentioned his illness to Bob in another thread, so I’m not breaking confidence that ILS was quite ill. Nonetheless.....never, not once in our many, very lengthy private conversations over the years, did he ever moan.
And his mind and sense of humour was so finely tuned, I’m having great difficulty believing that all of a sudden he cashed in his chips. I won't believe that. Neither was he ever one to lose his bottle, so an unpredictable impatience
or boredom with this forum is more than a little unlikely. I’ve written him at home and there’s been no reply, that scares me. I know he was very close with family so if his brother reads this, please let us know what's happening.
I deeply regret putting off writing this till now, but we haven’t forgotten you ILS. Please give our best to Molly, Smudge & Coconut. Gobeithio eich bod i gyd yn iawn mate, rydym i gyd yn colli yn fawr iawn.
As always,
"I'm a rag n' bone man, I'm not a poxy grave robber!"
